Mississippi allows you to complete your divorce without an attorney if you and your spouse can come to an agreement on what to do with your property and how you will care for any children that you have.
Mississippi Residency Requirements
At least one spouse must have been a resident of Mississippi for six (6) months before filing of the Joint Complaint for Divorce.
Grounds For Divorce
A no-fault divorce may be granted on the grounds of irreconcilable differences.
Filing Your Mississippi Divorce
The basic steps for filing uncontested Mississippi divorce are as follows:
- Both spouses sign and date the Joint Complaint for Divorce.
- You file the Joint Complaint with the Clerk of the Chancery Court.
- Both spouses attend a brief hearing. The Chancellor or Judge completes your divorce by signing your Final Judgment.
Division of property & debt, child parenting plan (including child support, visitation and custody), spousal support, and more are covered.
If you select a Mississippi divorce without children, you are selecting the following forms:
- Joint Complaint for Divorce
- Separation and Property Settlement Agreement
- Cover Sheet
- Financial Statement(s)
- Certificate(s) of Compliance
- Notice of Hearing
- Final Judgment
If you select a Mississippi divorce with children, you are selecting the Separation, Child Custody and Property Settlement Agreement instead of the Separation and Property Settlement Agreement.
